From Nashville to Instant Pop Success – Taylor Swift Sells 1.27 Million Albums of 1989 in Debut.
With music sales on the decline within the last 10 years, Taylor Swift’s newest release “1989” has sold more albums in seven days than any other artist has in the 2014 calendar year. In fact, the last time any artist sold this many albums in a week was in 2002 when Eminem had released “The Eminem Show”.
Many people have credited this success to her removing her entire catalog from the streaming service Spotify. Fans are now forced to buy the album instead of listening to it through stream, could this be a new future tactic artists will begin to use?
